Hello Jonathan,

Now when I use s6, I don't want to switch, maybe on some other
computers I can test the nosh. It looks like good system, especially
if you start providing such solutions for various daemons.

I see about adjusting environment. I guess that may be good, only
DISPLAY should not be necessary, it is daemon, and I start it without
display, and later also GNU Emacs running on X can access it, but also
from a console.

If I understand it well, in your system, you define services, and then
the service may be marked for start by user? And then it runs on each
boot by user?
